I can't remember a report about a Mom, famous or not, who sexually abused her kids. Is it not happening? Never
alleged or reported to the Police or County Attorney?
Kept below the radar? Mom's prostituting their daughters
happens and is reported. It's all a sad occurrence.
Sadly many of those records are sealed or not publicly available.
One story on a quick search revealed; http://www.rte.ie/news/2008/0715/incest.html
and a few others, you will have to do a filter search, most were related to males only.
Of bigger concern is What is called emotional incest, this is one of our nations greater problems and with many malformed relationships, lack of community support and the interference of the legal system for it's own cost benefit. A national crisis and with it, it generates ten fold the problem.
Good for Big Pharma, Bigger Government, and especially good for lawyers, psychiatrists and prisons.

What happened to her is very sad, I agree. And I believe she is talented and bright and what-not. But it is also sad that she never decided to report this herself. I have a feeling she knew this was not appropriate. Blame can't be placed on one or the other, I guess that's the bottom line.

friend, you call her a "very bright student". I disagree, her actions says that "she is a very dumb **** " and no I do not know her. At 16 years old, she is no innocent child. My opinion.
As for the teacher, if proven guilty, next stop free castration.
***She is a bright student and because some sick teacher thinks hes hot makes her a ****? She maybe old enough to know better but shes still not to blame. he has kids!! Hes sick. i hope he lives the rest of his life a worthless piece of crap. he ruined his life and hers. His poor kids. You think about them? If i was his kid i'd feel ashamed. I dont mean to get angry about the subject but this is ridiculous people all over are calling her a **** and they dont even know her. He's hit on many many girls in Sleepy Eye maybe that makes him a man ****, huh? A very sick guy if you ask me.
I really don't think it's fair you are bringing his kids into this argument. They have nothing to do with this. I know one of them, and she is a truly lovely person. It is an unfortunate situation for him, but it's unfair to transcend that to his kids.

There are many victims in a story like this, he's not one of them. What's a Dad with a daughter doing having sex with someone elses daughter? What's a Dad doing jeopardizing his career and his family's future well being in a relationship
he knows will land him in jail? Check out alcoholism or a drug
problem as part of the equation. A teacher in his right mind
doesn't do this, especially in a small town. My sympathy to
both families. Knowing his age and that he has a family
really compounds the tragedy.

I agree with you. I was not calling him a victim, he is responsible for what he did and he obviously knew it was wrong. I was just trying to say that blame can't be placed on the kids. And I agree with you that the fact he has a family compounds it. Very sad.

<quoted text> She is not very 'bright' and this proves it! Maybe this is how she got her good grades! A bright and respectable student boy/girl would tell their parents about crap like this. The problem is that nowadays 16yrs 'think' they can rule the world and those who are pretty take a lot of advantage of that fact because sadly enough in this society we've taught our kids that looks take you a long way!! Not' only is she not bright but nasty, 47??? EEEWWWWWW!!!!!
do you have children? because if you do i think your sick too. you are right hes 47 years old! and he had sex with a STUDENT A 16 YEAR OLD STUDENT...she got her good grades from HERSELF. She may have made a bad choose...but who knows maybe he was making it for her...and if you seriously blame a 16 year old for what happened to her... pshh..i just have nothing more to say to you.

The age of majority for males in ancient times depended entirely on which culture you are talking about. There was no age of majority in ancient times for females because in almost all cultures females were considered property not citizens.

And in ancient times when the life expectancy was around 50, couples were often betrothed as children and the marriage took place when the female began having periods...around 14-15.

If you think there wasn't extramarital sex in the past you are very much mistaken. People were just better at keeping it secret. Girls were kept virtually locked up until they were married. Once married it was the husband's job to see to the virtue of his wife but some of them would turn a blind eye to any affairs that their wife had provided the affair was with a man who could help the husband acquire land or other riches.

Peasant girls weren't kept an eye on but then merchant and noble classes didn't care about the sexual virtues of the peasant class.

Not so fast with your revisionist female version of history. I objectively quoted the considered age of what is a young humans transition point from thinking with natural urges to thinking with grey matter thoughtfully. That aside to secure this single agenda as solely an affliction imposed on the females lot in life would do males a disservice. The peasant class did include fathers and sons. Whom at the whim of the entitled were also subject to trial of honor before marriage of the bride. Son's subject to servitude to sodomy and night time companionship in place of females by our more entitled warriors. Males made to patriotically fight and sacrifice for the good of the clan, culture. Based on land grabs, wagers or bets. While their wives and their offspring were made to watch as the whims of the gentrified argue with the blood on their lands and human resources contained therein. What makes you think anything has changed ?

I have adult daughters too, who, as you so glibly express 'made it through without having to sleep with anyone'. In addition, I have been a public school teacher for 37 years without 'having a relationship with a student'.

The things that I have observed about parenting during those times are: Parenting is a full time job and you never get to take a day off; some parents do a very good job and their child still winds up having 'issues'; some parents don't seem to put any effort into it and their kids still turn out okay.

Even though my daughters are highly educated adults contributing to society, I must say that there were 'bumps in the road' during the time when they were growing up. Some 'bumps' turn out to be bigger than others. I congratulate you on your college aged daughter. Let's cut this family some slack. They are hurting enough.

It would have been better for all concerned if a certain part of Mr. C.'s anatomy really was "sleepy".

You are an idiot. Do not generalize that all teachers have the same morals as this one.
